Homecoming Cancelled or Not?

McPherson High School announced that this year’s Winter Homecoming Dance was cancelled due to high covid transmission levels. Spirit week is still on and there will still be a homecoming candidate ceremony but no pep rally. While many students where disappointed by the news some families took it among themselves to host their own public winter formal dance at the McPherson Community Building. The homecoming dance is now set to take place on February 5th from 8:00-11:30 pm. While this is good news for many who looked forward to the dance, it also raises the question “What will the school do?” Simply the answer is nothing.  The high school administration can’t do anything to stop students from attending an event off campus. It is up to the students of MHS to decide for themselves if they would like to attend or not.
